Geoff “Skippy” Huegill finds charity swim a real drag


LOL – “If swimmer Geoff Huegill thought losing 45kg for his comeback was tough, yesterday’s challenge really put him to the test. Huegill barely survived a 50m charity swim – while wearing jeans, a dress, a trenchcoat and leather shoes. The man they call Skippy was racing against 12-year-old Maddy Harley, who was swimming for her good friend Julz Free who suffers from cystic fibrosis. The race – which Maddy won – helped raise money for Cystic Fibrosis NSW after the girls put the idea to 2GB’s Ben Fordham, who asked Huegill to come on board.” Source The Telegraph via the17thman
